The report segments the global epoxy resin market by Type (DGBEA, DGBEF, Novolac, Aliphatic, Glycidylamine, and Others), by Application (Paints and Coatings, Adhesives and Sealants, Composites, and Others), by End-Use Industries (Building and Construction, Automotive, General Industrial, Consumer Goods, Wind Power, Aerospace, and Others), and by Region (North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, and Middle East and Africa). The report studies the global epoxy resin market over the forecast period (2018-2024).

Epoxy resins are polymers with low molecular weight containing one or more epoxide groups. The chemistry of these polymers can be altered to improve viscosity or the molecular weight as per the requirement. The important raw materials for the production of epoxy resin are mostly petroleum-derived, while some plant-derived sources are also used to produce epoxy resins. Epoxy resins provide high resistance to chemicals and outstanding adhesion, durability, and toughness  as coatings. Additionally, their high electrical resistance, durability at high and low temperatures, and the ease with which they can be poured or cast without forming bubbles make epoxy resin plastics  favorable for encapsulating electrical and electronic components. Moreover, epoxy resin adhesives can be used on various surfaces such as metals, construction materials, and most other synthetic resins.
